QOTSA founder Homme and his cohorts Troy Van Leeuwen, Dean Fertita, Michael Shuman and Jon Theodore are about to start a slew of new North American dates expanding the world tour in support of their newly released and chart-toping album …Like Clockwork. Stopping at Lollapallooza this summer, the band will return to the Metro stage for an Official Lollapalooza Aftershow on Thursday, August 1st.
In an all too rare confluence of events, the undisputed best rock record of the year is also the #1 selling record in the country: Queens Of The Stone Age’s universally acclaimed …Like Clockwork (Matador) has entered the U.S. Top 200 at #1 with more than 90,000 copies sold in the week since its June 4 release. The debut marks the Queens’ first #1 and nearly doubles the first week tally of the band’s previous album, 2007’s Era Vulgaris. Produced by Joshua Homme and QOTSA, recorded by Mark Rankin with additional engineering by Alain Johannes and Justin Smith, at Josh’s studio, Pink Duck, in Burbank, CA, …Like Clockwork is the sixth–and if critical consensus is to be believed, best–Queens Of The Stone Age album. The world would seem to agree, as the record has also gone #1 in Australia, Ireland and Portgual, #2 in the UK, Canada, Belgium, Switzerland, Finland and New Zealand, #3 in Holland and Austria, #4 in Denmark and top 10 in Germany, France, and Spain.
Please note that Metro/Smart Bar is located at 3730 North Clark Street, easily accessible for Lollapalooza festivalgoers via the Addison stop on the Red Line El Train. Public transportation is recommended.
